Because shopping with a deadline doesn’t need to be tough…

Truth be told, shopping on our lunch break can sometimes feel rather stressful. With 60 minutes to find the perfect ensemble for a friend’s wedding or an impromptu soiree, we often find ourselves running from one store to the next, while breaking out in a small sweat.

But if there is anyone on the planet, who knows how to navigate the high street with aplomb to find an outfit, it’s a fashion editor.

Which is why we tasked Stylist’s three editors – Polly Knight, Kitty McGee and Arabella Greenhill – with the challenge of sourcing great ensembles comprising of three statement-making pieces, all within one hour.

Watch our video above to see just how easily they achieved it.
